Can network marketing business be done part time? This is a question most persons who are currently struggling with a 8-5 job are always asking and thus itching for answers.
This question arises because of your busy schedule, the commute time to and from your regular day job and the attendant stress.
I offer you a resounding yes. Why? you ask. Let me explain.
Let me tell you straight away that network marketing, like every other human endeavour, requires hard work and great commitment.
Now, imagine what it would mean if you were to combine your regular day job with network marketing as a side business! The truth is it must be really hectic and strenuous.
However, having said that, I hasten to say that it can be done. Are you surprised?
Doing network marketing business part time requires strict time management. This is the first thing you must realize. Therefore, if you must become successful as a part time network marketer, you must learn adequate time management principles.
What this means is it requires extreme effort and self-motivation coupled with self-discipline. I hope you are beginning to get the idea?
You must, therefore, devote definite time to work your business. You must develop a routine and stick to it. No short cut to success.
If you intend to have a blog, which I strongly recommend, you must devote time to generate content. This also include the creation of videos and audios.
You should begin to address the issue of what time you think should be the most appropriate for you to work.
(a) morning before going to your regular job?
(b) evening after office hours?
(c) break time?
These are some of the options available to you. It is entirely up to you. However, whatever option you choose, you must have the self-discipline to stick with it, if you desire so much to make a success of your part time business.
From personal experience, I observed that there are various distractions that rear their ugly heads in various forms. Some of them are:
(b) social media
(c) websites and blogs
You will therefore need a ton of dedication and self-discipline to succeed. Just as you devote time to productive activities, you also need to devote time to check your emails, posting on social media, catching up with the trend in the business by visiting and reading other websites and blogs.
And of course, you must continuously update yourself by reading books in your niche, in marketing, business, email marketing, internet marketing and copy-writing and other relevant books.
But you must remember that these activities can constitute great distractions if you are not diligent, committed and exercise self-discipline.
Another important factor is you will need to be well trained and efficient in the running of the business.
These are necessary ingredients for success. Additionally, you must stay focused.
So if you have been itching to start a part time business while holding down your regular job, I dare say that network marketing offers you one of the best platform. Why?
Because to begin with, starting part time affords you the benefit of
mobilizing needed fund to invest in the business. This might be impossible or difficult if you were unemployed.
Secondly, starting part time reduces the risk of losing your investment. Imagine what it would mean if you were to plunge into a business without any experience. Experience has shown that most start ups fail because those who start the business lack experience.
So starting part time is a wise decision. Why? Because it serves as a learning period, where you make mistakes, correct yourself and build your business gradually.
Another advantage of starting part time is when you begin to make money, it automatically serves as an advertisement. This is because there is so much skepticism in this business.
According to one of my mentors, Casmire Okafor, it serves as the greatest advertisement tool for you and enables people to know that working part time does indeed work. How?
This is so when your lifestyle changes as a result of the success of your network marketing business. Because money accruing to you enables you to acquire material possessions that your regular job would never have made possible.
Now, do we have evidence of people who have successfully transitioned from part time to full time? The answer is yes. Listen to what one of my mentors has to say:
“When I used to work as an IT manager, I would wonder can I really start a side business around this busy lifestyle of mine?”
And why was he doubting if he could? Because, according to him, back then he used to do 4 hours daily inside Lagos traffic. Was he able to transition from 8-5 job? You bet he did!
The result? I am happy to inform you that today Adewale Adebusoye is rocking it real good in the network marketing business. Why was he able to do so? Listen to him again:
“Truth is that it’s possible to start a business around your hectic job or lifestyle. What matters is how badly you want to be free.”
And that’s the beauty of the industry. You can keep your regular job and build your home business until you’re ready to fire your boss. But you must determine why you want to start the business in the first place. This serves as the great motivating factor, keeping your zeal burning.
I know you must be itching to ask the next big question. What about you? Happily, that is exactly what I am doing. I am keeping my day job while working my home-based network marketing business part time.
My ultimate desire is to achieve time freedom. I am very confident that financial freedom will be an added advantage. So before I call it quits with my regular job, I want to ensure that my current earnings in my part time job would have exceeded my regular job earnings. And that’s what I will also recommend for you.
So, there you have it. Yes, you can start a network marketing business part time while working your regular day job. It is very possible. Many are doing it and succeeding. Many are on the entrepreneurial journey and are convinced of success. Yes, you too can do it.
I dare you to get up from your comfort zone, wake up and ask that fear to get behind you.
If you have the entrepreneurial mindset and want to start a side business, then get in touch with me. I am looking for 5 persons to personally work with. You could be on your way to an exciting explorations of a life time.
